The pictures on the website do NOT do this work of art credit by any means! From kissaki-to-kashira it is obvious that the true dedicated craftsmen at Ronin meticulously pieced this katana together, not purely for profit like others, but with a love of smithing and for the buyers enjoyment at the core. The soshu kitae method used to laminate this blade, and the amazing attention to detail used on the tsuba, seppa, and menuki make this sword wonderfully unique and I couldn't be happier! Between Chris and the whole Ronin gangs outstanding customer service, and the unbelievable job done on my Ronin Elite, I don't know how to tell you (the reader) any more convincingly that you NEED one of these katanas because chances like this only come once-in-a lifetime......so don't hesitate or you'll regret not owning one of these Heirloom Quality katanas which quite frankly (to steal a line from Indiana Jones) "belong in a Museum!!" Thanks Ronin!!
